A little update at my end. The label doesn't look so great after several months storage in my
cellar, but the beer is still good. Flavors have mellowed and changed quite a bit, I now pick
up a licoric...

Awesome! From your photo, the color looks pretty much like mine. Did you use a mix of lager and
ale yeast? Also, I have a box of both beers waiting to ship your way since a few months, but
for some re...

spirit of the or...

Also realized I don't have the right type carafa to do it properly. It should be the dehusked
type (carafa special 111). Anyone tainted their bipa with something else than grain? Could one
